    10 hours is such a long time, I'm not sure....  I would only trust it for that long if it was a super light day.

          I'm so confused.  This sounds really messy.  Why is this better than a tampon?

              I have a diva cup and really like it.  It's more comfortable for me than tampons and I have never had "leakage" problems that can happen when you bleed through a tampon.  Ewww!  It does take some getting used to.

                Tampons are a paper product. They absorb ALL moisture. Which is why it can hurt removing a dryer tampon when you pee. A diva cup or instead cup is a cup that only catches menstrual blood. It leaves all other body moisture alone so you don't dry out. 

                 

                It is also better for the environment b/c you reuse the product or recycle it.  Tampons go straight through to the landfill. EW.

                  I love this product and have been using it for years. was a bit daunted when I first started using it but I will NEVER go back. I keep tampons in the house for only 1 reason - my girlfriends who visit.

                    I have thought about trying it, but I'm nervous.  Is it really that great?

                      It takes a bit to get used to but once you get the hang of placement I think it is. There are a number of reasons why I like it but the top 3 - better for me, better for the environment and better on the wallet - you're not constantly buying tampons!
